This is the kind of stuff I try to get. I like that pokey sound. Much better than the garbage that the record companies sell, (or should I say pass off) to the public today.
I have a humble selection of similar 1920's music. Unless the contributer has a fine condition copy that needed little or no sound adjustment, I would say that when he/she processed the sound files, they left out processing of "crackle and hiss/pops", that accounts for the "noise". I sometimes wonder if I should do as minimal processing as possible, like this for authenticity.But I then think that I would like to hear it as close as possible to brand new.

the ODJB has taken a lot of grief from jazz academia over the years, but they actually played a very authentic version of hot new orleans jazz circa 1910-1925 and they swung. This particular version of St L Blues is played with great syncopation and feel. No wonder Bix and other cats were influenced by their sound. That being said, too bad Freddie Keppard turned down a recording contract to be the first New Orleans jazz band to record. Oh, to get in the time machine with recording equipment and hit the Big Easy about 1915...

Very scratchy, but great acoustical recording nonetheless. One can really here the influence of klezmer music in bits of the first third of this arrangement. I like to compare old and newer versions of the same song, and would pair this one with Pearl Bailey's cover from '40s/'50s.
